I've got a gimpy chicken. I'm pretty sure another of our hens went after her to make her gimpy, but now all the birds are very nasty with her. Though she is limping about, she can put weight on the leg and doesn't seem that badly injured, but the continued attacks aren't helping her heal. We've been trying to intervene, making sure she is getting food and water. This morning I even spent time spraying away the other birds with a hose so she could eat on our back porch. Finally, I wised up and put her in our fenced in pool area, where there is some grass and shade, hoping that she can have some peace. Our poor girl. She is getting cuddles, though. If chickens actually like that sort of thing.
Then we twirled. Cause that's what we do.
And then we started a paper mache project. If all goes well, my son may be making a submission for a kids' day at our local arts festival next month selling masks. This will mean a lot of paper mache...if only we could keep his sisters from stealing the balloons for his project.
